3 His divine power has granted to us all things that pertain to life and godliness, through the knowledge of him who called us to his own glory and excellence,
2 Peter 1:3
We are in a strange place in our culture.
There are alot of churches that say in their mission statement that they really want to help change the world.
I know alot of Christians who say they want to change the world…but when opportunities come we shrink away.
I can think of at least 4 times last week where I could have shared my faith with someone who I knew was lost, but I did not.
I mean I believe with every fiber of my being, that Jesus is the one who could totally transform and revolutionize their lives, why am I silent?
I’m so guilty of doing just this very thing:
Having a desire to change the world, but not really wanting to act on that desire.
How horrible is that?
I mean, come on!! God has granted me everything I need when it comes to knowing about ‘life and godliness’ …why in the world do I not yell it from the tops of building that I have the answer? It’s gotta start somewhere…
I really want to change the world. But how can I do that?
Most people think that when it comes to changing the world we must go to Africa or some other country in order for that to happen.
Actually, it needs to start in my circle of influence. It needs to start with people I know. I need to share the Gospel with people I’m around and let it build and go out from there!
Pray for me as I walk in and through this.
I don’t just want to love an idea…I want to live that idea out in my everyday life!
